It bears repeating that if I could be someone else, that person would be Eloisa James. Let me count the ways I am pea green over her life.
First, she writes the most delightful romance novels. I, on the other hand, start writing them but never finish.
Second, she is a college professor-tenured, mind you-of English literature, specifically Shakespeare.
Third, she is married to an Italian knight (I am not making this up) who is also a professor, and she and her family frequently visit his mother in Tuscany. Tuscany. Sigh.
Fourth, she spent a year living in Paris and wrote a book about that experience. She’s currently spending a year in London, visiting the Globe Theater and other literary landmarks, and will no doubt write another successful book.
I really hope I don’t develop a head like a dog for these feelings…
